A great deal of work in the field of Advanced Materials is taking place nowadays in every corner of Europe. Advanced Materials are the cornerstone of the technologies shaping the sustainable societies of tomorrow. But how many of our fellow citizens are actually aware of this work and its importance?

We aim to… 

  • Communicate the advanced materials science to the public
  • Unravel the significance of the advanced materials to everyday life
  • Highlight that advanced materials are our allies for a sustainable future!

We can achieve this easier if the Materials Science Community gets involved in public outreach activities and presents the importance of its work to the local public!

WHO can contribute?


If you have you worked with Advanced Materials as a student, a researcher, an engineer, a professor etc then you are probably better positioned than others to join our cause... 

Why get involved? 

Because Science is the only way to solve serious problems!

  • Το help your community and your students create a sustainable future based on scientific knowledge.
  • To promote your research or your group/university/research institute/company to the general public.


How exactly can I contribute?

You can contribute to the public outreach activities of our Community by getting involved in one or more of the following easy tasks:

Help us map the activities taking place in all European countries related to advanced materials. How? Simply by pinning your location along with a short description on our interactive map.

Present to the general public (in no more than 500 words) the topic you are dealing with in your research, or describe a subject you are particularly interested in. We will provide expert advice on how to communicate science in the best way to the non-scientific readership. We strongly encourage submission of articles in any official European language!

Check articles translated to your language for scientific and language mistakes. This task should normally take about 10 minutes of your time for each article. You can choose the scientific sectors of your expertise and your preferred languages to receive only articles that interest you.

If you find an article or a subject discussed specifically interesting, feel free to share it with your local community by translating it to your native language. Or translate articles submitted by other contributors in their native language to English.

Interact with people interested to find out more about advanced materials. Help them to become future members of our scientific community. We will give you moderator access in a topic of your choice to organise better the discussions. We also seek for moderators for each language in the local forum (“Babylon”).

Promote an event or contest that you or your university/research institute organise or any event that is related to advanced materials and you simply want to share it.

How ? 

Simple. Use the films, game and educational material that you find in this page. They are free!
